L.I.E.S.

NYC Synth master Steve Moore makes a welcome return to L.I.E.S. with his first ep on the label since 2012. Through these four tracks Moore creates a world with simplistic stripped down beauty, often using one synth and a drum machine to effectively construct alternate realities, as heard on the opener Broken Kills. This continues on the b-side opener Eigengrau, while Future 86 and Future 99 take a more dramatic komische influenced soaring arpeggiated approach. Unmissable.

PS+ISF (Parrish Smith & Interstellar Funk)

PS+ISF

Dutch powerhouses Parrish Smith and Interstellar Funk team up for their debut collaboration on L.I.E.S. with a new four track ep. Striking up the perfect balance of both their signature styles, this record hits the sweet spot between metallic synthwave, slow beat industrial, and clanging EBM hybrids. The duo effortlessly weave together a sonic narrative with nods to the past but unmistakable emphasis on their ever expanding foward thinking future sound. Recommended!

Doug Lee returns to the label under his AN-I moniker, this time collaborating with prolific Greek producer Unhuman on a new four track ep. This is what happens when you take all the right elements of techno, punk and industrial music and smash them together; a fucked up and devastating hybrid of blistering modern electronics. Heavy, but not stark by any means, Lee channels his inner Liasions with his vocal performace through the record. Most notably this is heard on the cut Entschuldigung, snotty laughs and scattered barks accent the stuttered drums and ms-20 feedback; Lee bringing it all together in a sarcastic funked up fashion. Five to Nine sees both producers complimenting each other expertly, clocking in with the most "dancefloor" cut on the ep...a twisted five minutes of screaming psychedelic dance that reaches an epic anti-climax of sorts. A true hit for those who know how to use it right, not to be missed.

Resurrected from the dark underworld after years of dormancy, LIES summon a new seven track LP from Legowelt's most mysterious and cultish alias, Gladio.

Through these seven tracks we get exactly what we want, back to basics jackin house and electro cuts direct from the depths of the Hague dungeon.
"Means to Freedom" is a return to the classic Legowelt sound, taking the roots of old school Chicago and Detroit and running it through the smacked out vision of Gladio's machine world. Absolutely unmissable jacking, soaring, and stomping jams that the modern floor has been sorely missing.

Matt says: Fierce Danny Wolfers alias perfectly suited to the LIES destruction engine. Some of his hardest stuff saved for this guise making this release sTrIcTly 4 da fReaKz...

One half of the KWC 92 (who has previously delivered two top notch lps for L.I.E.S.), Swedish producer Max Stenerudh aka Maxxx Bass steps forward with a 9 track solo effort titled "Gone Fishing". Right off the bat we hear Stenerudh immersing himself in a world of chilled out and narrative FM electronic explorations that call to mind places past. The untitled tracks leave it to the listerner to create a story on their own, as voice pads, hand drums and dare we say pan flutes push and pull their way through the album creating dreamlike textures and otherwordly escapes. Ideal music to fall into a late afternoon summer siesta to. LP comes come with full color 22cmx28cm color poster and download card.

Chicago's Justin Aulis Long and Ken Zawacki return to L.I.E.S. with their second ep under their Circling Vultures moniker. On this offering we get four tracks of tough yet psychedelic machine music. From slow bpm beaters to metal on metal floor cuts, these are executed with precision to do maximum damage whenever played. Sinking their teeth in and never letting go, looming over and waiting for the right moment to strike...tense music for the end times! Another killer from these seasoned club vets.

STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: You know what you are getting with this label so no need to hammer it home. Hardcore, eerie, end of the world kind of soundtrack for the times (probably not far away) when the social contract breaks for good and we all have to fend for ourselves. Only the strong survives and all that jazz. As long as you have your music player of choice properly charged and able to pump these tracks at high volume, just sit and contemplate the wonders of human chaos. Wonderful stuff and LIES will be there with you.
